December 8, 2018 in the Cultural and Exhibition Center of the Russian Museum in Kazan opens the exhibition “Andrey Tarkovsky. Space Artist ”, revealing the work of an outstanding Russian film director.
Andrei Tarkovsky - a recognized master of cinema - is considered to be the creator of a new artistic language in the cinema, an artist who brought to the cinema world a new aesthetics and philosophy that is relevant today.
At the exhibition “Andrey Tarkovsky. The Space Artist presents photographs of both the director himself and the photographers, colleagues who worked and were friends with the master, who supported him and made his circle of professional and creative communication.
The exhibition displays photographs from the filming of films made by George Pinkhasov, Arvo Iho, Sergei Bessmertny, Grigory Verkhovsky and other authors. A special part of the exhibition is occupied by shots from films and captured working moments of filming provided by the Mosfilm cinema group. These photos vividly and uniquely represent the very process of the birth of Andrei Tarkovsky’s cinema world, as well as the process of the birth of a myth, as well as an amazing and unique atmosphere in which all participants in the film process were immersed and which the master created around himself.
The exhibition also includes documentary films on the life and work of the director and a nostalgic photo project by Nikolai Alkhazov, which returns us to the filming locations of Tarkovsky’s iconic films.
The exhibitor is the famous Tatarstan artist Rashit Safiullin, who collaborated with the director in two projects: he was an artist in the play “Hamlet” of the Moscow theater Lenkom, as well as in the cult film of Tarkovsky “Stalker”. Unique materials associated with the "Stalker" are shown, including in the format of media art.
